Abstract:
[Student Abstract] Purpose: To develop non-traditional materials or media for promoting effective paternal attachment. To facilitate the use of these materials in diverse settings that serve young and poorer families. Significance: Paternal attachment has been shown to foster children's development, self-esteem, and success in school and other social situations. Paternal competence in performing infant care tasks and providing for the infant's needs are strongly correlated with paternal attachment. Although most fathers desire a nurturing relationship with their children, they often lack good male role models for developing these skills. Teenage and low-income fathers are at higher risk for poor paternal attachment because of fewer positive role models, lower levels of education, and less resources (financial and social) to facilitate their learning. Currently efforts to facilitate paternal attachment focus on written materials. Literacy is an issue with many teenagers and low-income fathers; therefore non-traditional methods are needed. Description: A 3-minute music-video presentation that demonstrates paternal attachment behaviors was developed with music and images appropriate for teenage and low-income fathers. Implementation and Potential Application: This music-video could be used as a public service announcement in movie theaters, as educational offerings in healthcare clinics, and as part of parenting education classes in public schools. Close collaboration with community stakeholders will be needed for acceptance and distribution of this video. Implication for Practice: Using media formats that are familiar to the target population can increase the acceptance of the message. Developing more effective approaches for fostering paternal attachment among high-risk populations (teenage and low-income fathers) can benefit children's health and development.
